We’re on the side of Youth
WJS Canada’s youth programs focus on youth justice, youth and children with disabilities, home living support and community access.
Our programs for custody and alternatives to custody balance academic, social, citizenship and other life skills with recreation in a culturally sensitive setting. Our priorities are the safety and well-being of the individual. We engage family and community support networks in creating positive change.
WJS home living programs include support and accommodations for First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) youth in Western and Northern Canada. Our services to at risk young females in care include emergency receiving and shared living in a hosted family setting.
Our community based programs address therapeutic youth work, support during the transition to adulthood, structured day supervision, in-home support, supervised access and transportation and community school programs. We provide opportunities for growth and development in safe, educational and nurturing environments that support and encourage youth in making favorable choices towards a sustainable, healthy and rewarding lifestyle.
Life skills and community based programs focus on empowering youth with disabilities to be independent, self reliant and confident.
